The following analysis and conclusions are offered in the full realization that a larger number of birds would be desirable, although some of the relationships indicated by the graphs are so positive that it seems doubtful whether more data would change them. The original purpose was to demonstrate a new way to make the game bag yield something more than meat, and this, at least, has been done. The task of analysis also clearly demonstrated the author's mathe- matical deficiencies, and while the very best mathematical methods have probably not been used, the work has been re- viewed by of the Forest Products Laboratory, who says - The clearest presentation will result, I think, from Llowing the analysisstep by step4and building up the conclu- Graphs 1 & 2 The birds were arranged in ascending order of weight New Mexico and Illinois separately, the weights plotted points, and the points Joined to form an unsmoothed "fre- noy curve" for weight. Next, the various body measurements were plotted for ea6h bird, arbitrarily adjusting the tertical scales so that the total range in each measurement would equal.on the graph, -2i
